Best time to visit Maun

It’s widely agreed that visiting the town of Maun is best during the winter month which are from May to October; the cool and dry conditions are optimal for 4×4 adventuring during this time. However make provisions for cold evenings and mornings. November until April may become a little too hot for comfort and most of the country receives its rainfall from December and February and obviously this will affect certain areas which are good for 4×4 adventures.

Around the area

Botswana is all about reconnecting with nature and the town of Maun really is no different. Many of the top attractions in the city are geared around this from the Maun Environmental Education Centre, to the Nhabe Museum which is an iconic colonial style building. Other attractions not far from the centre of the city or in the city itself include the crocodile farm and ostrich farm respectively which give international visitors a chance to learn about the area and get an up close and personal experience with these two iconic African animals.

Getting around Maun with your 4×4

There are so many great places close to Maun that you will want to see and explore them all. 4×4 rental Maun is really the only option.  This also gives one the option of going off road and if you have a tent, it’s also broadens your scope and camping is something that can be introduced into your itinerary.  

Length of stay

Since Maun is widely considered to be a frontier town 1 week should be enough time to experience it, since most of your exploring will be in other destinations close by most notably the Okavango Delta, which is widely considered to be a natural wonder of the world. That said it certainly is an up and coming place and with the rise in tourism also has come a rise in things to do and places to stay at, you may just want to extend your stay based on this.

What to pack

Make sure you don’t forget any of the necessary paperwork as some of the lodges you will be visiting won’t be close to urban areas, make spare copies of your documents. Some sort of waterproof clothing especially for The Okavango Delta region. Unfortunately Botswana is a malaria zone so malaria medication and a strong repelent are advisable. If game drives is one of your main focuses then make sure you pack neutral clothing that won’t expose you to animals. Make sure you pack a few warm items as well as items for the warm weather as conditions will vary especially if you are going on early morning or night time safaris. Other worthwhile items on any safari include a camera, binoculars and plenty of spare batteries and memory cards.

Where to stay

Accommodation around River

Many of the accommodation in Maun is geared around the activity of the river for which it’s extremely close to the town, so many of the lodges and bush camps will be found in this location if you wish to be close to nature.

Centre of Maun

Since Maun is a tourism hub there really is no shortage of accommodation which is geared around suiting all types of traveler from the discerning older exploring who needs a little more comfort out of their experience or the new younger backpacker who is choosing his accommodation around saving money Maun really has it all when it comes to accommodation.
